Teacher Accused Of Punching Neo-Nazi Says Standing Up To Fascism Isn't A Crime | HuffPost “We have the right to defend ourselves,” Yvette Felarca told the court. Please help me understand. I have been a stalwart conservative for the Bill of Rights and do not see how I can condone someone assaulting someone for hateful language no matter how vitriol or disgusting that language is. The Charlotteville protests and counter protests are something I've been processing for a few days now to try to understand how I feel about it. Nazis are abhorrent. Racist people are abhorrent. But I cannot control them and ask them to be censored from their right to free speech or their right to bear arms. Until they cross the line and actually assault someone I don't think I can condone a pre-emptive strike as "self defense." I don't think that doxxing them and making them lose their jobs really is to anyone's benefit because if this can happen to them it can happen to any other disagreed upon ideology, belief, or lifestyle. Facebook is a total meltdown at the moment and not helpful because SJWs or their equivalent aren't discussing it but saying simply, unfollow me if you aren't Can anyone try to explain this better to me?
